Hear the Sounds of a Destination Before Seeing the Sights, Thanks to Spotify and British Airways

March 17, 2014 at 9:22 AM | by | Comment (1)

Last month, we opened up our own iTunes playlists to share favorite travel songs we listen to when on the road. Now, British Airways and Spotify have followed suit to deliver songs that make you dream of different destinations.

Creating the ultimate soundtrack for travel to a range of BA cities is now a snap for UK-based customers of the music streaming service, Spotify. For starters, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Naples, Edinburgh and Valletta, Malta now feature their own British Airways-curated playlists. Traditional and local tunes are served up directly to your device to jam along to on your journey.

Where: Heathrow, London, United Kingdom

Little Red's check-in desks at Edinburgh Airport

Jaunted's 'Little Red' Series:
1. Par-tay on the tarmac!
2. The flight experience
3. Where it flies and for how much

We gave our verdict on Virgin Atlanticís new domestic UK service, Little Red, yesterday; now for the small print.

Little Red flies three routes: from London-Heathrow to Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Manchester, all intended as feeder destinations to get locals to Heathrow for Virgin Atlantic's long-haul flights. There are 26 flights a day in total—six each way on the Edinburgh route, three for Aberdeen and four for Manchester. All are perfectly timed to connect with the rest of VA's network.

Thereís a launch sale on right now that means you only pay the taxes. Unfortunately, since this is the UK, that means youíre not getting a bargain; it ends up £98 for a return flight between London and Scotland, and £103 return from Manchester.

2. The flight experience
3. Where it flies and for how much

Yesterday we brought you coverage of the fanfare upon the Edinburgh arrival of Little Red, Virgin Atlanticís new domestic UK service, flying from London-Heathrow to Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Manchester. Today, itís time for a photo dump...but also some thoughts on the interior and the overall LHR-EDI flight experience.

Was it as well planned as Bransonís kilt-flashing incident?

The short answer: yes, pretty much.

First Look: Richard Branson Shows Us All His 'Little Red'

Jaunted's 'Little Red' Series:
1. Par-tay on the tarmac!
2. The flight experience
3. Where it flies and for how much

Remember a couple of years back when Richard Branson lost a bet with Air Asiaís CEO Tony Fernandes, which meant he was going to have to dress up as a female flight attendant? That may not have come to fruition—although, according to Fernandes, the time is nigh—but he went one step better worse further early this morning at Scotland's Edinburgh Airport.

Launching Little Red, Virgin Atlanticís domestic UK service and a major step for the airline, Branson donned a kilt and then dressed down by flashing us.

Is This Picasso Too Sexy for Edinburgh Airport?

August 13, 2012 at 9:35 AM | by | Comments (0)

Thereís a little bit of a controversy brewing at Scotland's Edinburgh Airport, but it has nothing to do with baggage fees or airport security. This time itís an airport advertisement thatís getting passengers all hot and bothered.

On loan from the collections of the Tate over in London, Picassoís Nude Woman in a Red Armchair is now on the wall at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. An airport advertisement was just trying to get people excited for the new exhibit and to sell some tickets, but apparently the "provocative" display of modern art is not appropriate for an airportóat least according to some passengers.
